Hosta 'Forncett Frances'
 

This non-registered cultivar is a sport of a seedling of H. 'Frances Williams' from Sandra Bond of England. It is a large size hosta about 25 inches high by 72 inches wide with blue-green foliage that has a chartreuse colored medial (center) variegation. The leaves are broadly oblong to ovate, moderately corrugated and have thick substance. Near white flowers bloom from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...never noted any spring desiccation burn on this plant."

An article about H. 'Forncett Frances' by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (1996 Vol. 27 No. 1) states that, "This hosta was found at the Four Seasons nursery in St. Mary, Norwich, Norfolk, England...The leaves of 'Forncett Frances' are not as bright as those of 'Color Glory' (Aden) which is a sport of 'Frances Williams' and also having this hosta's reversed variegation."
